London and back and London and back and....


  It has always been a desire of our oldest son, Austin to come back and help us with the Olympic project. Everything worked out and so Kent went and picked him up from Heathrow on Wed.  On Thursday evening we received an email stating the shipping container with the outreach booklets was to be delivered on Friday morning at 9:00AM. So back into the car and back up to London to meet the shipment and place it into storage. In a culture where a 20 mile trip is a long way, two 500 mile trips in a few days is considered abnormal and unusual behaviour. Although our gas is down about $1.00 from its peak, it is still right at $9.00 per gallon making any car journey an expensive proposition.  The upside is that during the summer, there is a grocery store here that makes the most wonderful strawberry tarts. There is not a store near to us but they do have small stores in a number of service areas along side the motorway (interstate) that stock these little glimpses of heaven. Makes the trip bearable  :)

   Trips went well and the old BMW (see older posts) drove as well as it always did.  A few weeks of relative quiet and then off to London for the Olympics.

5 Years Later.......


  It is July 2012 and unless you have been living in a cave, you are aware the Summer Olympics are in London and they start in a few weeks. Over 5 years ago,we started making plans to host an evangelistic effort during the Games and not it is slightly over two weeks before a group of folks from the States arrive to help pass out Olympic themed John/Romans and Olympic pins.  The materials on on their way to us by ship and should land this week. We have approved the pin samples and the main order is in production.

  We covet your prayers that everything would workout logistically and that God would set divine appointments for us that we would have excellent opportunities to share the Gospel with people in London.
